You know how much I enjoy getting out of Belfast to discover boutiques and coffee shops in other local towns. Well, on Friday last, I headed to Ballymena because the town is hosting a fashion event called Ballymena Means Fashion on Saturday 8th April and so to help entice all you local girls to come to the town, I was asked by the Ballymena Means team to take a recci trip to see what's on offer!

Some shopping randomness now as I upload some of the many photos I've taken on my travels over the past 2 weeks....starting with a try-on in Next where I loved the colour of this ruffle sweatshirt but fell foul of the long arms! This was a size 8 so size down. It's a gorgeous soft sweatshirt and the ruffles give it such a lovely feminine touch.

The team at Asda Northern Ireland got in touch with me recently with gift ideas for Mother’s Day. They were offering to send me some bits for my kids to gift me but even though they were all lovely, I politely declined, explaining that all I ever want on Mother’s Day is not to have to cook. No gifts are ever required (apart from chocolate - it's always welcome).
I got an email back asking if my kids would instead like to have an Asda voucher to cover the cost of the ingredients to make my Mother’s Day a cooking-free zone (for me). Well, the kids were delighted with this idea and immediately made a list of what to buy. The only catch being that we’d have to do it all a week early - so that I could blog about it in advance of Mother’s Day. Well, as it turns out my son & husband have their birthdays either side of Mother’s Day this year so celebrating Mother’s Day a week early actually worked out well.

I've been wearing my Topshop white trainers so much recently that I figured it was time I invested in a second pair. Mainly because the Topshop ones are a bit flat and not overly comfy to wear for long periods but also because I get bored of wearing them and would like to have a second pair to mix things up. I do have a pair of Adidas Superstars but I've gone off them recently....they feel too 'kiddy'....probably because so many of my kids' friends have them too. I want to leave them aside for a while until teenagers stop wearing them and move onto something else!
